No one thought the Clippers would have lead the NBA’s Western Conference for as long as they did, but their reign is now over. Long live the new kings: Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Bruce Bowen, Rasho Nesterovic and the rest of the 10-3 San Antonio Spurs. Only the Detroit Pistons have a better record so far, at 10-2. (Mark your calendar: the Spurs play the Pistons in Detroit…

The Mavericks beat the Pistons by 37 points! And they led by as many in 26 in the first quarter. Still more surprising was their defensive play — the Pistons were just 5-for-19 in their lowest-scoring first quarter of the season. The Mavs have now beaten the two best teams in the league, the Pistons and Spurs, so they have to be taken seriously. Interesting sidenote: Bruce Bowen leads the…

This is according to Washington Post Staff Writer Michael Lee: Two weeks into the season, Duncan’s new ‘do and his off night are minor concerns for the defending champion Spurs, who remain an overwhelming favorite to win their fourth title in eight seasons. After all, Duncan, a two-time regular season most valuable player and three-time NBA Finals MVP, is still averaging a steady 21.6 points and 12 rebounds. “Nights like…

The Spurs beat the Hawks last night – no surprise there, as the Hawks have yet to win a single game this season. Tim had 23 points and 7 rebounds – no surprise there, except that you might have expected him to get more boards. Manu and Tony had 24 and 18 points, respectively. Tony still leads the team in scoring and continues to impress with his play on both…

I’m glad to see the sports press gradually lose interest in the Spurs. During the weeks leading up to the season, the Spurs were getting lots of coverage, either because they were being picked to defend their title, or because people just couldn’t figure out why they were losing their preseason games. And the question on everyone’s mind seemed to be, are the Spurs a dynasty in the making, or…

This whole “Notorious ___” nickname thing is played out. Therefore, I will now be referred to as “Bramlet Abercrombie” (thanks, Stephen Colbert) or “God,” whichever you prefer. That is all.

The Dallas Mavericks, in catching the Spurs by surprise early, have merely angered the mighty bear they caught napping. The Jack-You-Weather Forecast calls for “Deep Hurting, with a 40% chance of Heavy Deep Hurting.” Also, Mork Cuban picked the wrong fight with huge GINOOOOOOBILI fan Chuck Barkley… from The Detroit News Mavericks owner Mark Cuban routinely rips on the media in his daily Internet chats. Most of the time, we…

It’s amazing what a single loss can do to change expectations — Steve Kerr dropped the Spurs from 1st to 3rd in his latest power rankings. I think he was being a tad melodramatic by calling the Mavericks victory over the Spurs last Saturday a “bludgeoning,” and that it “silenced the dynasty chatter in San Antonio for the time being.” Fear not, the dynasty chatter continues here at SpursDynasty.com, and…

After two decisive wins to open the season, first against the Nuggets then the Cavaliers, we at SpursDynasty.com were taking bets as to how many wins the Spurs would get before a loss. I was the low guess with five wins. No one imagined that it would be just two wins, but sure enough, the Spurs lost in Dallas Saturday night. Tony had a big game while Tim’s numbers were…

Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash had this to say about Leandro Barbosa after tonight’s nail-biter loss against the Kings: “I think the bottom line is that we showed some heart, fought back, and I thought the second unit was great. Leandro had an amazing game.” Barbosa was a first round draft pick for the Spurs in 2003, and is off to one hell of a start this season.
